That's what i was thinking volforever. If Gruden had no interest to be y'alls HC he should of never allowed there to be a frenzy over it by Vol fans. It's his wife's school. He should of nipped it in the bud. I thought his silence meant he was serious about taking the job. Tennessee is bigger than Chucky man. The right hire and Tennessee is right back. Chucky isn't make or break for y'alls program.
No, but the problem is too many people have put all their eggs in the Gruden basket. It's not as done as Jimmy Hyams claims it is (his sources are questionable -- as someone pointed out, he said we were not going to hire Kiffin two days before we did just that), but there is a crop of good coaches out there who can be had.
I would prefer Gary Patterson over pretty much anyone else.
